Homemade Dishwasher Detergent

UPDATE: I did not care for this detergent.  It left powdery film on many of my dishes.

I have been meaning to make some of my own cleaners for a long time now. I even had the box of Borax and a huge bag of baking soda waiting on me. A friend of mine just inspired me to actually do it. She had challenged herself to make something new each month that she would normally buy. What a fun idea.

So, I pulled out my recipe for homemade dishwasher detergent an made a batch. I think it took all of 1 minute.
1c Borax
1c Baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Mix together. Use 1 Tbsp plus 1 drop of liquid dish soap with each load. You can use white distiller vinegar for a rinsing agent. How easy!
